has intiated a new podcast entitled the Long View. He has written a nice summary of the goal, which I will reproduce here:


The Long View is a podcast that is designed to provide a critical and in depth look at a specific game each episode. The games we feature in our discussions will be more than just a few months old! Many will have been released in the past one to three years. New enough to not be old, but not old enough to have already been designated as classic or clunker.

There are a myriad of fine podcasts and reviewers that do an admirable job of giving a first look at new games that arrive on the scene. It is the hope of the host and guests that this podcast will answer the call for more critical and long term analysis of the games we all love to play. Therefore, the contributors to the podcast will be people who have a considerable amount of time and experience with the game being discussed in each episode. Through a question and answer format, and an open, unscripted dialogue, it is our hope that this podcast will offer something new and unique for listeners.

Our plan is to release one to two episodes per month. We hope you enjoy the podcast! Please post your questions, comments or feedback here on 2d6.org, our generous hosts, or join our guild on BoardGameGeek.com. Thanks for listening to The Long View!
I was not involved in the first episode, which is on Thunderstone, but Geoff has kindly asked me to co-host future episodes, and I have every intention of being actively involved in the podcast. The current plan is to have the next episode be on Mage Knight the Board Game, which I have played an obscene number of times, but future episodes are currently being discussed.

I am pretty excited about this project and I think it has a lot of potential. Hopefully some of you will tune in!
